SONHP Student Talking About Nutrition

Nutrition Education

Students can schedule a free individual nutrition education appointment with a Dietetic Technician, Registered (DTR) or a certified Peer Health Educators. This confidential appointment will help students identify dietary behaviors they can change to get them on track to healthy eating and positive body image.

Once scheduled, please submit a 24 hour food record prior to your appointment, or be prepared to do a 24 hour recall of your food intake on the day of your appointment.
